Spartan Community Collections: will continue next year with a specific focus each term

View the full monthly collection list.

The community service graduation requirement of 6 hours a year must be done during the academic year, early September 2018  through early June 2019 for freshman, sophomores and Juniors.  Seniors (Class of 2019) must have their community service – senior year and all previous incomplete years – done by February 22, 2019, the last day of winter term classes.  We always encourage students to volunteer over the summer for programs they are interested in learning more about, however summer hours may not be used towards the small requirement we have.

Click here to read about how to verify service hours. Many projects are offered through Lawrence Academy on the weekend and are posted in the weekend activities here on The Page or on the community service webpage.  (Summer service, is wonderful and encouraged, but not accepted as part of our requirement.)
 
Community Service Opportunities: Play baseball with kids with disabilities, help build a house for a deserving family, organize donations for children and teens in need, visit with senior citizens and adults and children with disabilities, serve a meal at a soup kitchen, and more. Check out the full list of CS options through our online community life sign-ups.  All CS projects have possible service hours to be earned in parenthesis after the title.  (The start and end times include travel time, if the project is away from campus. Travel time is not counted towards required service hours.)

Upcoming "on-your-own" service options in the Groton & Westford Area:

  • Miracle Baseball League in Acton, MA needs volunteers for Saturdays -  6/1, 6/8 or 6/15. Visit their website to sign-up – you need to provide your own transport there.  (Those Saturdays will count towards THIS year’s requirement.)
  • Sleep in Heavenly Peace is has a major national bed building event called Bunks Across America. The Littleton site is still taking volunteers for June 15th. (There is a fee associated with it, in order to raise funds to buy the materials for the beds. You need to provide your own transport there.) Learn more and sign-up for the event by clicking here.   Check out the video of when LA students volunteer for them back in February. (I hope some of our local students can get there and represent LA. Those hours will count towards THIS year’s requirement!)
